Skat explorer yacht

Skat | 70.70m (231'11")

built in 2002, Germany

The iconic yacht Skat was built for the man behind Microsoft Excel — Charles Simonyi. As with many of the world's largest explorer yachts, Skat has the appearance of a naval vessel, with its grey paint scheme and angular features.

Simonyi asked for the angular look, as steel and aluminium come in flat plates. "Why spend time and tonnes of filler to make it look like something its not?" he asked.

The explorer yacht is uncluttered and the interior makes use of only a few specified materials. Wide corridors and side decks, and large practical stairwells make Skat a functional vessel, and set her apart from other yachts. The guests cabins are all on the main deck, leaving the lower deck entirely for crew use and storage.
